Helena Bonham Carter,
A man runs into a woman at a wedding. They start to flirt and talk and find that they get along. Throughout their discussion, the man talks about certain memories as if they were common to the two of them. We gradually learn that there may have been a previous connection between these two when they were younger. This just leaves more questions as their past is slowly revealed. Written by
The final shot in the movie was the only one captured with a single camera. Aaron Eckhart and Helena Bonham Carter were shot in the back of one taxi on set. In post production, the shot was digitally divided in two; digital movement was added for each car and two separate background plates were composited to create the illusion of different taxi interiors.

Dual screen character piece brilliantly played by Helena Bonham Carter and Aaron Eckhart
This film is a bit different than most because is filmed for dual screen, meaning that during every scene there are 2 cameras capturing the action. Usually we are shown the same event from different angles, other times the 2 sides are splits in time, so we see the past and present. The main characters, played brilliantly by Helena Bonham Carter and Aaron Eckhart, meet as participants in a wedding and rediscover their past. The dialog is brilliantly written and the acting superb. In the question and answer session after the screening, Ms. Carter was asked if the split screen made acting more difficult. She replied that unlike the shooting of a "normal" movie where they would have to shoot each person's part separately then take a break and move the camera and do the other person, with both camera's running at the same time, the whole scene could be shot nearly continuously allowing for a more realistic conversation situation. This made things much easier, but she did admit she missed having any "down time" since she was always in front of one of the cameras.
